The flashings and aluminum cladding (or trims) of a home are among the most important components to protect it from the elements.
A flashing is a material used to seal the junction between two surfaces exposed to the elements. Every junction of a wall with a roof, or of two sections of roof sloping at differing angles should have some form of flashing. Every protrusion in a wall such as a door or window should have some form of cladding (or capping).
Improperly installed roof flashings are one of the leading causes of roof leaks. Likewise, doors and windows without adequate cladding are often the cause of structural damage due to water infiltrations.
As well as improving the weatherproofing of a home, simply adding aluminum cladding to an old wooden window can rejuvenate its appearance and significantly reduce the maintenance required to keep your windows looking great.
